We had a really nice ten day break and now it's back to reality.
I'm out on San Francisco now for our fourth National and Mid-Pacific ICT Centers Winter Conference. This conference runs January 5-6 and features excellent presentations from ICT industry and ICT education representatives. Even in this period of high unemployment, quality ICT education leads to quality ICT employment, and that has a positive impact on the economy – at many levels. We're sharing quality ICT education information, resources and practices, improving ICT education, helping people find good ICT jobs and improving our current economy. I'd like to thank the City College of San Francisco, Microsoft and San Francisco State University for all the work involved in setting up and running this conference.
We leave San Francisco on Saturday morning, flying to Dallas for the Winter Working Connections Conference we are co-sponsoring with the Convergence Technology Center at Collin College. We'll have two fast-paced networking opportunities and conference presentations followed by two days of an in-depth faculty institute at the Collin College Preston Ridge Campus in Frisco, TX.
